Section B

Directions: Read the following passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or

unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the

one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.


“I want to be just like you. You are from uptown, aren’t you?” the young man asked in the

local slang with a broad smile unaware of the burning tropical sun. Selling bags of potatoes at the

roadside, his extra-large T shirt and faded blue jeans were a proof to the universal influence of

American pop culture in Africa. I had accepted a seat at his potato stand to take a break before

concluding business in Accra that afternoon. Between busy sales serving customers stuck in traffic,

he asked numerous questions about life in America, convinced that having a visa to the United

States was like winning the lottery. How could I tell him that I envied his simple life and childish

innocence when I was guilty of the silent culture that has helped to create a false image of

Africans living abroad?

Outwardly, I looked like the poster boy for success visiting from the United states. My white

designer shirt and matching pants were straight from the shopping malls in Detroit, where I

worked as an engineer. Inwardly, I was caught in a web of ambition and cultural disappointment.

My clothes suggested wealthy, yet I could not afford the numerous requests for money or to make

gifts of my belongings. Uncles and aunties who were prepared to mortgage their homes to help me

leave 10 years ago now expected me to finance cousins hoping to make the same move to the

United States.

America had fulfilled my ambition for furthering my education and professional experience. I

had arrived with the equivalent of a high-school diploma, and after 10 years, I hold a graduate

degree and have a relatively successful professional career. Every inch of progress, however, had

been achieved through exhausting battles. My college education had been financed partly through

working multiple minimum-wage jobs. I was fortunate to secure a job upon graduation, but

adjusting to corporate culture made me pay another high price. Initially, I found myself putting in

twice the effort just to keep up. Scared by a wave of layoffs. I went to graduate school part time

because it was only way I knew that afforded me an edge in job security. It was as though I had

run 10 continuous marathons, one for each year abroad, and my body screamed for rest.

66. In the eyes of the young potato seller, the author seemed __________.

A. to be a successful man

B. to have won a lottery

C. to represent American culture

D. to know a lot about the U.S.

67. At the bottom of his heart, the author feels that ____________.

A. he wants to exchange places with the young seller

B. he is sorry for his cousins still living in Africa

C. his American dream has come true.

D. he is torn between the two cultures.

68. The author managed to enroll in a graduate school because __________.

A. studying graduate courses helped him adapt well to the life in the company.

B. a graduate degree was the minimum requirement for his career.

C. a graduate degree would give him an advantage over others in the job market.

When we think of leadership, we often think of strength and power. But what are these really,

and how do they operate?

Leadership today is not about forcing others to do things. If this is even possible, it is

short-term, and tends to backfire. If you order someone to do something against their will, they

may do it because they fell they must, but the anger they fell will do more harm in the long-term.

They will also experience fear.

Fear causes the thinking brain to shut down, making the person unable to function at this or

her best. If they associate you with this emotion of fear, they will become less functional around

you, and you will have ended up in not only shooting yourself in the foot, but possibly making

every good employee or partner unable to perform effectively. Fear has no place in leadership.

The way we influence people in a lasting way is by our own character, and our understanding

and use of emotion. We can order someone to do something, which may be part of the workday;

or we can employ him or her at the emotional level, so they become fully devoted to the projects

and provide some of their own motivation. Today’s work place is all about relationships.

Anyone works harder in a positive environment in which they’re recognized and valued as a

human being as well as a worker. Everyone produces just a bit more for someone they like.

Leaders understand the way things work. They know the paycheck is not the single most

motivating factor in the work life of most people.

The true strength of leadership is an inner strength that comes from the confidence of

emotional intelligence --- knowing your own emotions, and how to handle them, and those of

others. Developing your emotional intelligence is the single best thing you can do if you want to

develop your relationships with people around you, which is the key to the leadership skills.

70. An employee may have a feeling of fear in the work place when ________.

A. he thinks of his work as too heavy

B. he is forced to do things.

C. he cannot work at his best.

D. He feels his brain shut down.

71. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

A. Smart people are more functional in the work place.

B. People tend to associate leadership with fear.

C. Working conditions do not affect people’s physical health.

D. Good relationship is the key to business success.

72. To positively influence employees, a leader should first of all ________.

A. hide his own emotion of fear

B. provide better suggestions

C. develop his own personality

D. give his employees a pay rise

73. Good leadership is mainly seen in a leader’s ability to _________.

The traditional tent cities at festivals such as Glastonbury may never be the same again. In a

victory of green business that is certain to appeal to environmentally-aware music-lovers, a design

students is to receive financial support to produce eco-friendly tents made of cardboard that can

be recycled after the bands and the crowds have gone home.

Major festivals such a Glastonbury throw away some 10,000 abandoned tents at the end of

events each year. For his final year project at the University of the West of England, James

Dunlop came up with a material that can be recycled. And to cope with the British summer, the

cardboard has been made waterproof.

Taking inspiration from a Japanese architect, who has used cardboard to make big buildings

including churches, Mr. Dunlop used cardboard material for his tents, which he called Myhabs.

The design won an award at he annual New Designers Exhibition after Mr. Dunlop

graduated from his product design degree and he decided to try to turn it into a business.

To raise money for the idea, he toured the city’s private companies which fund new

businesses and found a supporter in the finance group Mint. He introduced his idea to four of

Mint’s directors and won their support. Mint has committed around 500,000 pounds to Myhabs

and taken a share of 30 percent in Mr. Dunlop’s business. The first should be tested at festivals

this summer, before being marketed fully next year.

Mr. Dunlop said that the design, which accommodates two people, could have other uses,

such as for disaster relief and housing for the London Olympics.

For music events, the cardboard houses will be ordered online and put up at the sites by the

Myhabs team before the festival-goers arrive and removed by the company afterwards. They can

be personalized and the company will offer reductions on the expense if people agree to sell

exterior (外部的) advertising space.

The biggest festivals attract tens of thousands of participants, with Glastonbury having some

150,000 each year. Altogether there are around 100 annual music festivals where people camp in

the UK. The events are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious.

74. Eco-friendly tents in Paragraph 1 refer to tents __________.

A. designed for disaster relief

B. economically desirable

C. favorable to the environment

D. for holding music performance

75. Mr. Dunlop established his business _________.

A. independently with an interest-free load from Mint

B. with the approval of the City’s administration

C. with the help of a Japanese architect

D. in partnership with a finance group

76. It is implied in the passage that __________.

A. cardboard tents can be easily put up and removed by users.

B. the weather in the UK is changeable in summer.

C. most performances at British festivals are given in the open air.

Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words.
What can Europeans teach Americans about increasing employment? Until the financial crisis of the last two years, the answer very clearly would have been “nothing.” The European social-democratic model has many advantages, but getting people into work and keeping them there has never the chief one among them. Until now, Much ink has been spilled in recent months over the fact that the American and European unemployment rates are both now roughly at about 10 percent, while a number of Northern European economies ---- including Germany (7.5 percent), Denmark (7.4 percent), Austria (5.4 percent) and the Netherlands (4 percent) ---- are well below that. Even as the U.S. international companies send jobs abroad, big European companies like Siements are adding them at home. Every day seems to bring news of a new factory being built in Denmark or Germany. Newspaper headlines announce the European “job miracle.” As American unemployment figures stay high, economists on both sides of the Atlantic are debating whether the U.S. should start adopting a more effective approach to labor policy.
To answer this, it’s important to understand the nature of the “miracle” and whether it really works. European nations have kept unemployment figures low relative to the U.S. this time around because Europe’s labor markets have evolved to depend less on subsidies(补贴) that keep people on the dole (领取失业救济金) than on government programs to put them back to work quickly. What’s more, rather than focusing simply on rescuing their economies by stimulus as the U.S. has, northern Europe has spent its resources keeping people at work ---- by any means necessary.
In the Scandinavian countries, that has involved large and successful training programs to get laid-off workers back into jobs quickly. But other nations, namely Germany, jobs have also been kept by cutting hours rather than laying off workers, a number of European companies have chosen to cut full-time schedules by a third or more as part of larger government programs to avoid mass layoffs. Companies save money on salaries because the government picks up the cost of the pay cuts. It’s a successful temporary measure, but one that adds to the national debt and also has the potential to twist European labor markets. “These measures are successful now, but they could become very risky if the recovery is delayed,” says economist Paolo Guerrieri of the University of Rome.
(Note: answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN 15 WORDS) 78. The current European social-democratic system has many advantages except _________________. 79. What is the so-called European “Job miracle” against the background of the financial crisis? 80. Besides training programs, another measure adopted by many European companies to avoid laying off

The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage.
It was the ambition of an eleven-year-old boy in Kansas City to be an engine driver. Born without arms, he had been to special schools, where he learned the skill of using his feet as “hands”. He spent all his spare time watching trains and one day his dreams came true. Seeing a deserted engine, the boy climbed in and he had no difficulty in starting it with his feet. Soon he was traveling along at forty miles an hour. Signalmen could not see the young driver, so they didn’t try to stop the train. The train passed Fillan and Omar, and reached Missouri, where the boy stopped the engine himself, and then made it go backwards. When he was near home, a railwayman caught up with the engine and stopped it. At first, the railwayman was very angry. When he saw the armless boy, he was surprised and he smiled when the boy said simply, “ I like trains.” “Well, I’m glad you don’t like planes!” answered the railwayman. Questions: 11. How did the boy acquire the skill of driving an engine? 12. Where was the engine stopped at last? 13. How did the railwayman feel when he saw the armless boy?
Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage.

Section C Directions: In section C, you will hear two longer conversations. The conversations will be read twice. After you hear each conversation, you are required to fill in the numbered blanks with the information you hear. Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. M: What’s the article mainly about? W: It’s about Dr. Catani’s research. It says that IPad generation is losing out on vocabulary. M: Nowadays children have access to the Internet, mobile phone and tablet computers, which are
visual rather than auditory. That means children learn vocabulary from on-screen image but not from everyday conversation. W: Yes. Dr. Catani said: “When we learn a new word, we start by hearing a sound, and then we try to repeat it until we get it right. Through this we increase our vocabulary from age one until we get to 30,000 words as an adult. M: That means these findings show that listening, repetition and conversation matter a lot to learning language. W: Yes. Hearing and then verbally imitating is key to understanding. M: Since we know how children learn new words, they are likely to have less vocabulary than the previous generation. W: So we should spend less time on these devices and talk more to our children to maintain the oral tradition of passing on knowledge to our children.
Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. M: Hi, Sharon. I haven’t seen you for ages. Are you still working in the studio?

W: Yes. I like photographing the best moments of the animals in studios and sell prints online. M: What’s your goal during each shoot? W: Capturing the animal’s charm----it can be something in their eyes or the way they move. M: Since you have long been working with animals, can you tell me something about them? W: The animals generally fall into two categories: some are cute, and some are striking, like the
American buffalo. M: Do you get scared when you photograph animals like lions and bears? W: No, it even doesn’t occur to me to be scared. I have confidence in the handlers I work with.
And focusing on shooting can totally distract me from anything around. M: Are certain animals easier to photograph than others? W: Some animals like buffalo and cow don’t do much, which makes it easy for me while animals
like chicks and cats move around. I have to focus and be ready for the split second and the right position. M: What are the tricky parts that people wouldn’t expect? W: It’s a lot of work plus stress and self-doubt that comes with any creative pursuit.
